Organisers arranged a packed day of events and stalls in the surroundings of the stunning Cadhay House and gardens.

The entertainment included a birds of prey display and musical performances. Visitors also got to enjoy tours of the Tudor house, browsing a range of stalls, Devonshire cream teas and the much-anticipated grand draw.

All profits from the day went towards the upkeep of the church.

The Reverend Stephen Weston said: “We had a really good day and that made it worth it.
